Karan Johar has finally broken his silence over the controversy of his film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil that has been the subject of intense political debate after MNS called for a ban on the film owing to the presence of Pakistani actor Fawad Khan in it.
Speaking out for the first time, Karan Johar through a video message put his country before self and saluted the Indian army for their valour.
The director condemned terrorism and also declared that going forward he wouldn’t work with Pakistani talents given the current circumstances prevailing in India.
Here is what Karan Johar had to say for the whole matter :
A group of nearly 450 cinema owners of four states has decided not to screen films with Pakistani artistes to respect public sentiment after the Uri attack last month in which 19 soldiers were killed by terrorists from Pakistan.
Parties like Raj Thackeray’s Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) have threatened to vandalise cinemas that screen Mr Johar’s film if he does not drop Fawad Khan. Many in the film fraternity have backed Mr Johar.
Here is the video of the statement :
